If you have never been to Cherokee Health Systems before, you can call our Central Access Department toll-free at 1-866-231-4477. TTY #711 (between the hours of 8am-6pm EST). Staff will collect information, send a registration form to complete and schedule your first appointment. You will then meet with an engagement team member who will acquaint you with Cherokee and make sure you are being connected with the right provider. Once you are an established patient, you will automatically receive a reminder of follow-up appointments. If you are sick and need an unscheduled appointment, simply call the Cherokee clinic you normally use.
